Service: Garden & Landscape Care

I am very specific in how I tend to my property. I use what resources I have on the property which means I mulch with pine needles, grass and leaf mulch from mowing the yard. I have a stick pile and a compost pile plus a weed pile. They all decompose returning nutrients to my property. No need to buy fertilizers!

I do not use gas powered equipment. I use handheld tools and an electric mower, that is it. I do it like this because it’s best for our local environment. Without the use of  loud, stinky, gas powered equipment, our local environment is less polluted, less noisy, and healthier. Plus I get to move my body and use my muscles!
